Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to get us out of the war on Yemen, pass the ENABLERS Act, and abolish the debt ceiling. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Demand Progress helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass a War Powers Resolution getting us the hell out of the Saudi/UAE coalition’s war on Yemen. Because it’s killing good Yemeni civilians as well as taking out some of the world’s best fighters against al-Qaeda, funny how that works out, right, Kurds? Saudi Arabia’s also cut back oil production as a sop to Russia, whose government deserves no sops at all. Too many politicians act like we have no alternative to allying with Saudi Arabia, too many generals wind up becoming consultants for Saudi Arabia, and too many regular Americans act like Saudi Arabia’s OK because Iran’s worse. Like the Greatest Nation on Earth should ever have to choose!
The Project on Government Oversight helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass H.R. 5525, the ENABLERS Act. I’ve been calling folks who give aid and comfort to dictators “enablers” for close to two decades now, so it’s nice to see Congress getting into the act. The ENABLERS Act would give our government more tools to crack down on the many forms of money-laundering that enable Russia to continue its doomed-but-still-evil war on Ukraine; I suppose some folks on the right (cough Rand Paul cough) would complain that this would give government more tools to snoop into your bank account, but it’s actually hard to look like you’re laundering money for Russia unless you’re doing that.
Finally, Civic Shout helps you tell your Congressfolk to abolish the debt ceiling. Used to be the debt ceiling was just useless, since Congress raised it all the time without controversy, but now the debt ceiling is a tool of evil, since Republicans take it hostage every time they want to hurt good Americans. I am not overstating the case! As we speak, Republicans are telling us that if they get control of either house of Congress again, they will create another debt limit drama aimed at forcing cuts to Medicare and Social Security. Republicans are being so obvious about it that Democrats are even running ads about it! So, as with the filibuster, it’s best to take weapons away from legislators when they abuse them.
